About the Center

Introduction

Welcome to our Kumon Math and Reading Center. For more than 50 years, Kumon’s after-school academic enrichment program has helped children achieve success worldwide. We strive to instill in children the desire to achieve and the motivation to learn on their own. Whether your child is seeking enrichment, needs help catching up or is just beginning his or her academic career, Kumon is designed to help him or her develop a love of learning.

Students advance through the program at their own pace. Our emphasis on individualized learning helps your child become focused, motivated and self-reliant. We monitor each child’s progress to ensure comprehension before moving on to a new concept. With a strong academic foundation, critical thinking and problem solving abilities, your child has the potential to achieve whatever he or she desires.

The Kumon Math Program is a comprehensive curriculum that develops the necessary skills to help children progress from counting through calculus. For more information about the Kumon Math Program, click here.

The Kumon Reading Program begins with basic phonics and progresses all the way through advanced reading comprehension. For more information about the Kumon Reading Program, click here.

Our center's vision is to help every student unlock their academic potential and allow them the opportunity to be anything they want to be in life.  We strive to help your child achieve academic success and confidence and apply it beyond the classroom and academics. Our center focuses on students and their parents, and our goal is to connect with each child and family through effective planning, encouragement, guidance, feedback, and especially communication.  

We serve families from Northbrook, Glenview, Glencoe, Winnetka, Highland Park, Deerfield, Northfield, and other surrounding communities.

Policies

Kumon of Glenview - West Math and Reading Center Policies


One-subject students attend class for approximately 20 - 30 minutes.

Two-subject students will attend for approximately 45 min – 1 hour.
 
It is important to keep in mind this time may vary depending on the student’s level, age, and the worksheets assigned. Students should arrive on time to complete their assignment and supplemental activities for the day.

We recommend that on Tuesday and Friday one-subject students arrive no later than 6:00 p.m. and that two-subject students arrive no later than 5:30 p.m. Preschool students will be asked to commit to a specific time.

In order to maintain an atmosphere conducive to study we request that only students enter the Kumon Room. If needed, please make sure your child visits the restroom and gets a drink of water prior to beginning their work.

Please feel free to wait in the designated waiting area; the classroom is for students only. During Kumon time, please be respectful of the students’ time. If you wish to speak to the instructor, you may schedule an appointment via email.


Center Calendar
Kumon is a year-round program of study. Although, we do observe some national holidays as well as break in summer and at the end of December, specific dates of center closings will be posted in the parent waiting area.  Kumon homework is assigned 365 days per year unless otherwise requested at the time of registration or at least one week prior to any adjustment request. Parents may request weekends or vacations free from Kumon study one week in advance.  

Homework Completion
Homework completion is the core of the Kumon program.  Students learn and progress in their mastery of the material through the completion of the Kumon exercises.  Students must write their name, starting time, complete the work, and their ending time.  Parents should grade the work as soon as possible and students should correct their work as soon as possible.  After the corrections are graded (and corrected again if needed), students should engage in oral drills with their parents (reading aloud or providing answers for problems aloud).

Class Attendance
Class attendance is a vital part of the Kumon program. Observing students at work in class assists greatly in the planning process for that student. We also prefer to introduce new concepts in class so we may assist your child in reaching his/her Kumon goals. If a student is unable to attend class, please email us by 10:00 a.m. on the day of the class. This will allow us the time to make adjustments to the student’s plan and prepare the work to be picked up. Work for absent students is left outside in the Kumon box if the parents request in advance.

Absence Policy
Kumon is a year-round study program, however each student is allowed 1 month absent from the Kumon program per calendar year.

Workload
The Instructor determines the number of worksheets assigned. It is important that the student be given the appropriate level and amount of work. Parental feedback regarding student’s work is always welcome. Please contact the Instructor the day before the class to discuss any adjustments or concerns regarding your child’s Kumon study plan. An adjustment to the workload is the discretion of the Instructor.

Vacations
Kumon homework is assigned 365 days per year unless requested in advance in writing at least one week prior to the date of the adjustment. Parents should let the instructor know at least one week prior to the absence. Please indicate the class days to be missed and any adjustments required for the students’ work. We encourage that students do not take break from their regular Kumon routine on long trips. 

Communication
Regular Kumon information will be sent to parents in the student’s homework box.  Progress reports will be sent every quarter i.e., March, June, September & December.  You may request a meeting at any time to discuss your child’s Kumon progress.  Please note that meetings will not be scheduled during class time.

We welcome your feedback. Never hesitate to ask questions, share concerns, or generally let me know how everything is going.
